It's rare find for a guy to seek out counseling before the wedding.
But it's a wonderful sign of his commitment to the marriage.
It's a sign that he wants to really understand the complex feelings that his fiance is feeling. He also who wants to understand what he's feeling...the surprising feelings of fear and sadness that often come up for the grooms, even though he's the one who got the ball rolling by proposing.
It can be confusing, for everyone getting married.
That's why I love this email I received from Ron -- a very manly man who fights forest fires for a living:
I'm about 50 pages into your book, and I've already learned so much about how this step in life can and will change people.
I had no idea all this was going on inside of both her and me. I feel like I have a much better grasp on my emotions, and more compassion for hers.
It's been helpful to bridge the gap between our sessions.
This email is proof that that tactic works.
